GONE FISHIN!

"GONE  FISHIN!"

It was a gorgeous Spring day and what better to do than...
take a drive in the country and go fishing!  Our nephew has friends
that have a ranch close to Midlothean, Texas with three fishing tanks.
We caught big mouth bass and a few brim.  Because it is spawning season,
we threw them back and will catch them again later on in the spring.
I caught one as big as the one Phil has in the picture below but didn't
have my camera at the time.  I do have witnesses, my nephew, brother-in-law
and Phil, my husband.  It was a glorious day and we had so much fun.
Thanks for the memories, John!

We were not alone out there. 




Ya'll come back, ya hear!!!!!!

"CREATIVITY"




"Creativity is the mind at play with
the materials that it loves."~Carl Jung

                     A friend inspired me when she gave me a "Mini-quilted Birthday Card"       
to get out my fabric and ribbon embroidery basket.
I had made a ribbon embroidered crazy quilt pillow for my
grandaughter for Christmas as shown in a prior post.
I had some scrapes from that project left and could not bring myself
to throw them away.  So I was delighted with the idea of this little quilt.
I decided to use my scrapes to make some 4" sachet angels with lavender
seeds inside for a delicate lavender smell.
Below are pictures of two angels made from the
crazy quilt scrapes and one made with raw silk and embroidered flowers.





 

Pictured below is my "Mini-quilt Birthday Card" and some
others that my friend has made.
@ 5"x7"








I finished another crocheted baby quilt, white with a blue edge
for a friend  who has a new grandson.


 
That's it for now.  I have enjoyed keeping my hands busy making these items, now
I need to get back to painting!!!!!!!

"PIPER"

In Memory of

PIPER

Piper was one of a set of triplets born 2 years ago. 
 She was in poor health and ill all her little life and passed in December.
  The other two girls are healthy and doing well. 
I did the drawing for a friend to give to Piper's family.

Ribbon Embroidered Pillow, Croched Blanket and A Baby Bootee!



RIBBON EMBROIDERED HEART PILLOW
 A Christmas gift last December for my granddaughter, Ella.
I made this crazy quilt with ribbon embroidered flowers
on pretty white and off white fabrics including
silk, taffeta and satin. Of course I made all the
flowers PINK!  Ella has it hanging on her bed post.





A good friend had a baby girl in December.  I finished
a crocheted  baby quilt for the new arrival.   I also painted
a 5"x5" pink baby bootee with her name and birth date.







I'm working on some ribbon embroidered angel sachets
and will post them when I am finished. 
Also, I am crocheting a white baby blanket for the next
friends baby or grand baby.  I am getting smarter in
my old age.  I will finish off the white blanket with a
border of blue or pink whichever I need.
